Clifton College believes a first-rate education also caters for the student’s moral and spiritual development. We live in confusing times. Attitudes, beliefs and ethics, which have for some years remained unchallenged, are now constantly questioned and diluted. The ground is shifting daily beneath children's feet in this respect and, in terms of the whole development of the child, we are not afraid to stand up for moral absolutes.
While Clifton College is an Anglican foundation, children of all faiths are welcome and special arrangements can be made for their religious needs.
The magnificent Chapel plays an important part of life at Clifton. On one Sunday in four, the service is compulsory for all pupils, although members of non-Christian religions may choose to attend their own place of worship instead.
The Roman Catholic Cathedral is conveniently located nearby, and Jewish pupils can attend services in the Polack Centre Synagogue which forms part of the Upper School campus. The School makes provision for worship for pupils of all other religions, whenever possible.
Personal, Social & Health Education (PSHE) lessons also help to engage all pupils in positive discussions about a whole range of issues such as personal relationships, hygiene, and smoking
